Adult Education

Emanu-El University meets Tuesday nights from 7-9PM, from September through May. Two classes are offered:

  • Adult B'nai Mitzvah meets from 7:00-8:00PM. Pam Coyle and Rabbi Rosenbaum will teach students to read Torah and Haftarah for the first time. No experience necessary! The Adult B'nai Mitzvah service typically takes place in mid-May each year. This May, we are excited to celebrate this milestone with congregants for the seventh year in a row.
  • Judaism 101 meets from 8:00-9:00PM. Rabbi Rosenbaum leads students through a range of topics such as Shabbat, holidays, Kashrut, Jewish history and philosophy. This introductory-level class is appropriate for anyone learning about Judaism for the first time, looking for a refresher course, and for those seeking to convert to Judaism.

A Touch of the Bavli is an introductory-level Talmud class that meets Thursdays from 9:15-10:15AM from September through May. Rabbi Rosenbaum teaches students basic Talmudic concepts and passages from the tractate of Berakhot (blessings).

Danish & D'rash meets weekly on Saturdays from 9:00-9:30AM, immediately prior to Shabbat morning services. Rabbi Rosenbaum leads participants in a brief discussion of themes of the weekly Torah portion. Enjoy a complimentary cup of coffee and a sweet treat as we talk Torah!

Watch this space for information about a new Hebrew-reading initiative, as well as Chai Mitzvah, a new adult education experience for Emanu-El, both launching in the Fall of 2017!
